Hi, my name is Alewya, I live in San Jose, CA. I have experience of 14 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I like to help people who need help from me and I had a grandma who had problem with her eyesight, so I helped her. That's how I started in this kind of job. I love it.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, you have to love the job, you have to have a good heart, you have to be honest, you have to have patience.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Ingrid. She passed away when she was 95 years old. I worked with her for three years. She was very nice. She taught me how to cook her cultural food and taught me a lot of things. I learned a lot of things from her. So, she's always in my mind.
